"Sun of a Gun" as written by Nanna Fabricius and Jimmy Harry....
Once burned, twice shunned
Too much of your line made me blind.
I'd wait all night
But you left one too many times.

I want to change my orbit
Don't care what you do now.
I want to live in darkness
Don't want to be spun around.

You go down, down, down
I fall out of love with you.
Come back round, round, round
You son of a gun.

You go down, down, down.
This time I won't save you
When you drown, drown, drown
You son of a gun.
You son of a gun.

Birds sing for you,
You can make the blue sky blush
You've got them all fooled
But I am burned out on this rush.

I want to change my orbit
Don't care what you do now.
I want to live in darkness
Don't want to be spun around.

You go down, down, down
I fall out of love with you.
Come back round, round, round
You son of a gun.

You go low, low, low.
This time I won't save you
When you go, go, go
You son of a gun.
You son of a gun.

Red sky creepin'
Disappearing
Bye-bye feeling
Heart you're stealing

You go down, down, down
I fall out of love with you.
Come back round, round, round
You son of a gun.

You go down, down, down.
This time I won't save you
When you drown, drown, drown
You son of a gun.
You son of a gun.
You son of a gun.

    General CommentFirst, as sleepy said, it is "Sun of a Gun"
    also the one line towards the beginning is "Too much of your LIGHT made me blind"

    The 'Sun of a Gun' expression just means that he is similar to the sun, as she keeps getting drawn back to him emotionally like a planet orbitting him.

    She keeps falling in and out of love with him like the changing of day to night. She wants to live in darkness and fall out of love with him forever but she keeps getting drawn back to him over and over again.

    She wants it to be night time forever and never see him again because he is deceitful and she is sick of it.

    General Comment agree, this song is completely amazing. I believe some guy is playing her, and maybe he doesn't even mean to, but strings her along. She says she's burned out on this "rush", the rush you get when you meet someone you're really into... makes you hurt when the feeling is not returned. Unrequited love is the inspiration here, I think, despite the upbeat tempo... But it makes for such a great song...

    General Commentto me this song is about giving up on a relationship with a person that is lost and depressed and dragging you down with them. she's watching him galavant with other women, 'you've got them all fooled,' but she realizes she's not going to be fooled again. he's a sweet talker, but she's gotten wise. still, she's aware of the strong pull he has on her heart.
